For three nights, the biggest Valentine for Kewaunee County is playing at the Agricultural Heritage Center in Kewaunee. The "Hooray for Hollywood" show put on by the Kewaunee Young People's Theater raises thousands of dollars for several causes throughout the county. Community members have been practicing their skits for the shows over the last month, including every night for a week leading up to Friday's performance. Kevin Dax has performed in Hooray for Hollywood for years and says whether you are performing or one of the one thousand-plus people that show up, it is humbling to see the community come together for a great cause.
Playing February 14th through the 16th, tickets only remain for the Friday and Sunday Hooray for Hollywood shows. Last year was the first year the organization eclipsed $50,000 raised during the weekend, which was later distributed as scholarships and grants for over 20 organizations.
